Tune of the Day: The Rambler from Ross
Traditional Scottish tune
This marching tune appears in Chicago police officer Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. The original name of the tune could not be ascertained, so O'Neill named it “The Rambler from Ross” as it was a favorite of Highland piper William McLean's, who was a native of Ross, Scotland.
